PVI remains after creating vertical curve

530 Views, 5 Replies

I have a profile view of a street surface which transitions from a 2.75% grade to -0.52%. I would like to add a vertical curve so I can add a label at the high point of the street. However when I create my vertical curve, the original PVI is still there and the surface uses the PVI's elevation rather than the vertical curve's.

 

How can I get the PVI to either go away or have the surface read the vertical curve below the PVI?

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Austin

Are you sure those lines to the PVI from PVC & PVE aren't just "Line Extensions" in the Profile Style that can be turned off?

Settings Tab Toolspace>Profile>Profile Styles>Style name>Display Tab>Line Extensions - visible

 

As far as the surface not honoring VC elevations, if this is a corridor surface, has it been rebuilt since adding the VC?

Jay,

 

Thank you so much! You hit the nail on the head with both of those suggestions. I rebuilt the corridor which fixed my elevation issue, and turned off line extensions which fixed my profile view. You just saved me from hours of frustration, thanks again!

Quite frankly, I am not sure why you would not want to show the PVI.

It would probably depend on the drafting standards mandated by the authority to whom the drawings will be submitted.
